For small-space city dwellers, minimalists, and reformed hoarders, holiday-season consumption can feel stressful and unnecessary. And besides, if you’re traveling, bringing gifts to and from just means an extra checked bag or two. This year, when my family chose to do a destination Christmas in Sicily, I suggested that we give each other tiny gifts instead of our normal exchange. In order to accommodate objects of all shapes, the rule is that the sum of the dimensions (length, width, height) cannot exceed ten inches. Additionally, the gift must cost less than $40 — with unofficial bonus points for the most clever, smallest, cheapest gift. For my competitive and creative family, it’s turned out to be an amusing shopping challenge, and it gives me peace of mind knowing that I’ll have control over my suitcase space. If you, too, wish to downsize and gamify your holiday shopping, I’ve got 50 extremely small gifts to surprise everyone on your list with.
